A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Andover hypnotherapy branch
Everyone who calls us is asked why they can’t stop smoking. We’re happy to provide hypnotherapy to anyone, so why do we ask this question? Because we need to know what their problems are before we can work out what help they need. But also because they should know why they have had trouble stopping. It is remarkable how many people want to come to our Andover hypnotherapy branch because they believe hypnotists help people to stop smoking, but they don’t know why.
When we get this answer we usually ask another question, which is if the smoker believes they are addicted. They always say yes to that one. So, we then ask them if they can see that this is why they can’t stop smoking. Oh yes, they say. That’s what Mandy said. We were quite happy to book her to see our Andover hypnotherapist, but we just wanted to take this to the next level first. The next question clients sometimes ask is, if they are addicted, which is physical, how does hypnotherapy, which is psychological, help?
Although addiction is physical, it can be overcome with the power of the mind. Addiction creates psychological dependence, Overcoming THAT dependence allows the body to get over the addiction. Mandy had come to believe the myth that her addiction was in her head. The truth is addiction was in her body, but her brain wasn’t allowing her to deal with that. What our Andover hypnotist did was to switch off what her brain believed – that she needed to smoke. If she didn’t believe it, it didn’t matter what her body said. She just didn’t need to smoke.
Mandy was just pleased that it worked. She believed it was some kind of trick, and in fairness one could say that hypnotherapy is a kind of trick. Addiction itself is a trick, so why should our Andover hypnotherapist not use the same tools to help Mandy break free?
THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Here’s a snippet from the book. There are lots of pages you can read for free. We suggest you do this before you come to our Andover hypnosis branch.
….. Now I want you to write why you want to start smoking again. No, it’s not a joke.
So, you didn’t write anything in it, huh? Now, write the reasons why you MIGHT start smoking again.
I would be interested to see if you wrote something because you are genuinely afraid of it, or you wrote nothing because you know there isn’t supposed to be anything now and you want to get it right. Well, it’s a good job I can’t see it, I expect, but what I’m hoping you’ve written is nothing. You have made mistakes before but there is now no reason for you to repeat those mistakes. Alright, there may be stress, there may be any number of reasons why you would smoke a cigarette because you’re not thinking, but there is now no possible reason why, if you make a mistake, you would smoke for the rest of your life, or a year, or even a week, because you have established beyond doubt that:
You want to be someone who doesn’t smoke.
You know why you got it wrong before.
You accept that the mistake was a mistake.
There is therefore no reason to repeat that mistake.
TALK WITH OUR HYPNOTIST FIRST
When you enquire about hypnotherapy we will discuss whether it’s what you need. If it is, we will have our Andover hypnotist phone you, because you will still want to see if you like them. Hypnotherapy is great, which is why we provide it, but your success will also depend on your relationship with the hypnotherapist you see.
